This is the weather forecast for tomorrow, I knew it was too good to last this lovely warm weather we have been having. However it won’t matter tomorrow as I am going on Quilt Retreat for a Day and teaching my good friend, Jayne, how to quilt!
This, of course, may be the blind leading the blind! But Jayne is willing to have a go! I haven’t been quilting too long but do know the basics so we will start there.
Jayne’s Birthday is eight days before mine and for the past few years I have made her quilty things for her Birthday and she has said for a while that she would like to learn to quilt, so this year, for her Birthday, I gave her some material, a book on the basics and an invitation to my home for her to come and have a go at cutting and sewing a block. I decided to do the Log Cabin Block as it makes sense to me and it also grows quickly and looks good (I also made her a log cabin pin cushion!). It also doesn’t have any points! Points need to be mastered and I am still having issues occasionally!!!!!
This was Jayne’s present last year.
So Eldest is taking Youngest to school for me tomorrow and Jayne is coming round after she has taken her Youngest to school and we can start. I have also said, for her Birthday treat, that we will be having drinks and cakes in the morning followed by lunch! A perfect Friday!
Whilst Jayne is busy with her blocks, I am aiming to cut out the pattern for the Picnic Quilt by Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy so I can make a start on sewing that, as one of her test quilters.
I think it is going to be a great Quilty Day!
